Ever since Heather Martin was cut out of The Women Tell All episode of this season, fans have been speculating that she and Matt James are dating. So what is the current state of their relationship? Heather addresses the question in the latest episode of The Ben and Ashley I Almost Famous Podcast.

Heather says, “I’m not dating Matt.” She also explains, “I think he has a lot going on in his life. You know, he’s going through a ton. I can’t even imagine…so many different aspects of the show, just everything. So, I think he has a lot going on right now. So, no, I’m not dating Matt.”

Fans also suspected the two were dating when they both posted on social media from San Clemente, California. However, Heather addresses this too. Some fans may be disappointed to learn it is just a coincidence.

Martin says, “I mean, San Clemente is like 30 minutes from me. My best girlfriend lives there. So, I’m in San Clemente all the time. I guess he was there, too.”

As for her being cut from The Women Tell All, Heather does not say much about it. She says, “I don’t know, guys. I don’t know what I’m allowed to say these days.”

While her time on Matt James’ season of The Bachelor is short, Heather Martin made quite an impression with the other women in the house. The other contestants were very frustrated with Heather’s arrival and voiced their opinions.

So how does Heather feel about how the other women treated her? She says, “I have no, like, bad feelings about the girls now. I understood where they were coming from, and, like, I understood they were frustrated…I was really sad and shocked about the reaction. But no, I have no ill will towards the girls or any, like, negative feelings. I understood it.”

Also, some fans want to see Heather return for Bachelor in Paradise, but it may not happen. Heather says, “I don’t think that’s the show for me for multiple different reasons. She continued, “Yeah, I don’t think so.”
